In 2020, The Rea Foundation, Rea’s non-profit corporation for charitable giving, received some extra attention. We added structure and formalized and improved processes in order to make a greater impact in our communities. Since beginning this initiative, we created three committees:

(chaired by Rick Lash, Independence): This committee is responsible for finding ways to raise more funds through the foundation, and thus make a greater impact.

(chaired by Ben Antonelli, Dublin): This committee is responsible for reviewing and approving donation requests, as well as formalizing the overall mission of The Rea Foundation and the types of causes we support.

(chaired by Becca Johns, Rea Corporate Partners/Dublin): This committee is responsible for adding additional transparency about the impact of The Rea Foundation. It will also help make The Rea Foundation a bigger part of Rea’s brand story.

We also appointed new trustees to the Rea Foundation board: Don McIntosh (president), Paul McEwan (secretary), Tammy Haney (treasurer), and trustees Ben Antonelli, Becca Johns, Rick Lash and Maribeth Wright.
